Aunt Louise's Chocolate Zucchini Bread

This old family recipe will make you love zucchini! This rich, sweet bread is not only filled with chocolatey-goodness, but it’s also jam packed with zucchini. Zucchini is low in calories, high in fiber, and contains many necessary vitamins and minerals that you body craves.


  • 1 cup oil (or for a healthier alternative use 1/2 cup applesauce and 1/2 cup oil)
  • 2 cups sugar 
  • 1 cup nuts, chopped **
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup cocoa 
  • 2 cups zucchini 
  • 3 tsp. cinnamon 
  • 1/4 tsp. baking powder 
  • 2 tsp. vanilla 
  • 3 cups flour 
  • 1 tsp. salt 
  • 1 tsp. baking soda 
      ** - optional ingredient 


1. Beat oil, eggs, sugar and vanilla together. 

2. Add remaining ingredients. 

3. Grab 2 loaf pans on 3 smaller loaf pans. Do not grease them but put folded paper towels in the bottom of each pan. 


Grab 2 cupcake tins. Grease these with pam, oil or butter. 

4. Pour mixture into pans and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before serving! 

Eat this bread in moderation and enjoy for breakfast, as an afternoon pick me up, or for dessert with vanilla ice cream!
